Kind of a boring brew day. Im brewing 10 gallons partial mash BIAB style, i cleaned 3 fermenters, 1 carboy, 1 keg, and kegged 10 gallons of an IPA. Busy boy but still have a lot of down time. Staring at the forum wondering if anyone else is brewing tonight... ?

Current status, 121 am, flame out, HMEs added, sitting at 5 gallons. I have 27lbs of ice on standby, no wort chiller method. Wort sitting at 190 so I'm gonna sit here and wait a bit for Mother Nature to lower the first degrees. The worst part of the night is coming, carrying carboys downstairs. Im gonna just sit and enjoy a sir Kenneth for a bit. 

 

PS whirlfloc and yeast nutrient added at 10

I'm trying to find your dark Grisette here, but we'll need a couple lbs. of malted wheat for that.  Or did you already brew that?

well i'm about to try out the Omega yeast packets, and recently got the Gigayeast DIPA packet in for a creative NEIPA experiment!!! Began another saison/brett this next weekend until some a$$hole stole my yeast packet off of my front porch about 30 minutes b4 I got home! but I didn't know it was shipping so soon. I just hope they enjoy the yeast slurry fermenting into their belly!!!! IDIOTS!!!!! LOL!  So I just got back an hour ago from my LGBT, uh I mean my LHBS and decided with the White Labs American Farmhouse Ale blend to use in place of the stolen yeast.

Omega yeast is my favorite. However ive never used wyeast or giga. Ive only kinda tried white labs. My brew buddy using wyeast all the time. Two smack packs, no starter.

Looking at Dark Farmhouse as it stands, I might actually save the Mandarina Bavaria for the dry-hop and use the Strisselspalt for the late boil addition, i.e. swap-the-hops.  As for the new grain bill, I've been using 4oz. flaked rye in my Petite frere de Saison 2-gal. batches so maybe 1 lb. would work nicely for this Grisette.  Anyway, I don't know if this will turn out to be the beer of your dreams but if it is, hopefully that dream won't be a nightmare!:D

Not sure of the difference between flaked rye and rye grain for usage and taste wise. But rye malt is what i have.

 

this would just be something new. Thats all im looking for. Branching out a bit

So is this the final recipe? I think I’ll brew ten gallons and make one a grisette and one a dark wheat with some hefe yeast. Or am i switching around the hop schedule?

Right, along with adding a pound of your malted rye, I think the Mandarina Bavaria would be the better dry-hop.  I really like your method of splitting the batch and getting 2 brews out of 1 mash. 🍻

Thanks man. I think brewing this way makes me really think about the yeast and how i can achieve different beers just changing one ingredient. Plus on this particular occasion, I will have some harvested hefe yeast to use.

Moved the last two Hop additions around, added rye malt. The yeast is a lie. I only have dry yeasts in my spreadsheet. @Bonsai & Brew Is that what you wanted me to do with the hops?

 

forgot Vienna, ignore that. I’ve added it on my side

Oh, OK.  I'm just curious what half a pound of 430 ºL Carafa 2 will do for the final color.  How dark do you feel this brew should be?

@Bonsai & Brew 1/2 lb brings us to 28 srm, about in the brown ale srm range. 30-40 would be like a stout. 

 

Color is not a concern. Flavor is. Not sure how carafa II tastes at certain levels. This is a brew with a lot of first for me

Yeah, I thought about that as well -- too much Carafa might impart undesired roastiness, but with limited use it might not be noticeable.  We need help from @MRB Josh R and @MRB Tim on this one!

Carafa is a dehusked grain whose main purpose is to add color without a lot of flavor. It is preferable to any of the darker grains if that's what you're looking for. You can even get less flavor by doing an overnight cold steep instead and adding that to your boil. If you can't get Carafa, Blackprinz is basically the same thing, but from a different brand (Briess).

The three gallon cooler is getting used today. Pretty sure ive only used it once before. But a 10 gallon BIAB batch with 12.5 gallons of strike water and 17 pounds of grains say that it is a must. Prepare for excellence rubbermaid cooler. I need you at your best today

To be honest, I don’t taste anything at kegging anymore. Not sure why, I guess I just want max volume in the keg. If I have a little left in the fermenter then I’ll pour a glass.  But anyway, it smelled great. I’m really not planning on tapping this for quite awhile. If a keezer spot opens up and I have nothing else then I’ll throw it in but I really want this beer to age with that Brett in there. Shooting for maybe one keg in February and maybe one for summer or possibly next winter?

Shoot, I'm just seeing this. It was a long day at work. I'm gonna get after it though. I say we go with a big farmhouse ale. You've got a helluva lot to work with. I'm all in though. I'm going to take a general stab without a brew calculator though; working on drinking a few after a long day is the current priority. Let me know what you think:

golden promise all the way

a touch of Munich 

aromatic for good measure

nice and light SRM 

I like Willamette highlighting with southern cross on rhythm

mild IBUs but not too much to take away from the funk...it's gotta be funky. 

We need more cowbell. And by cowbell, I mean Brett.

I like the idea of using New World hops with a Saison malt base and yeast, so, ya know, you could/should do that. I did something very similar with Ekuanot pellet/CryoHops and I overbittered a bit (only my 2nd AG batch) but otherwise I was quite happy with it.

That southern cross flavor profile sounded perfect for a farmhouse brett beer. Ive never used it before. Ive never used ekuanot either

Ive never used it before. Ive never used ekuanot either

 

I've never used Southern Cross, either, but I'd say Ekuanot is mostly peppery. I had a separate Brett Saison that's been in secondary for a while now, I used Tettnang for that and it seemed to work well.

@Big Sarge water profile to match what google says DuPont water profile is. This beer will take a long time before drinking

 

You, sir, are an artist. That looks damn good. It bears a damn fine name, too. I swear I'm going to make a tshirt with that on it!

We just graduated the the kids from basic training this afternoon, with the next cycle starting in a mere 10 days. In the interim, I have lots of catching up in all things beer.

well i'm about to try out the Omega yeast packets, and recently got the Gigayeast DIPA packet in for a creative NEIPA experiment!!! Began another saison/brett this next weekend until some a$$hole stole my yeast packet off of my front porch about 30 minutes b4 I got home! but I didn't know it was shipping so soon. I just hope they enjoy the yeast slurry fermenting into their belly!!!! IDIOTS!!!!! LOL!  So I just got back an hour ago from my LGBT, uh I mean my LHBS and decided with the White Labs American Farmhouse Ale blend to use in place of the stolen yeast. 

 

We miss you man!🍻

I'm making a pale ale to use up some extraneous hops. I want to bitter with one and split into two for dry hopping. Here's what's available:

 

Azacca: B/A 14% Citrus, pineapple, pine

Waimea: B/A 16% Citrus, pine
Wakatu: A/B 6.5% Floral, citrus
Calypso: B/A 12% Floral, fruity

Azacca: co-humulome- 38-45% Citrus, pineapple, pine

Waimea: co-humulone- 22-24% B/A 16% Citrus, pine
Wakatu: co-humulone- 28-30% A/B 6.5% Floral, citrus
Calypso: co-humulone-40-42% B/A 12% Floral, fruity
 
columbus for refrence: 28-35%
 
so long story short with 0 experiences in any of these hops. Id go with:
 
waimea for bittering since its only a pale and not an ipa. Then split azacca in one and the last two blended in the other. I love a low bitterness, juicy pale ale. Let them dry hops shine

I like it. A lot. I think they're definitely logical pairings throughout. 

Question: Why the insistence on pointing out the co-humulone levels? I've obviously heard of it before, but I'm too lazy/busy to look it up. 

Thanks again @Creeps McLane

Alpha acids are one way of looking at a hops bittering power but the true indicator is the co-humulone.
